April photo: Sea Anemones


At the beach we can find more than just sand and rocks. When the tide goes down, it is time to look for "treasures" like these anemones stranded in the small pools. Photographing them is a challenge, both on sunny and cloudy days. There is always some reflection that we prefer to eliminate for a perfect vision. We usually work with a polarizer. However in this case, cloudy morning, did not produce the desired effect. Instead we used an umbrella and, as it took away a lot of light, also a high ISO value so that the anemones, always in movement, did not come out blurred. In the end, after several tests, we achieved an interesting result.
